  • YOUR WAY CAMPS

These camps allow you to select your routines and the skills you want to learn!  They take place at an overnight camp location so your team will still get to interact with multiple staff members and teams, as well as receive the USA leadership classes and take part in rally night.  This combines the options of a home camp with the overnight camp experience.  It has a lower staff-to-student ratio than a traditional overnight camp, allowing more individualized attention and a customized schedule.
